Mythbusters tried to split a car in half by running into a V shaped snow plow, they didn't get nearly that far!

They were trying to do it with a much wider cutting device (snow plow) and the engine was stopping the blade because they were aiming directly at the centerline of the car.

They did succeed in a later episode using a rocket powered "blade".

If stunts like this keep happening, insurance will go through the roof for everyone. Glad he's ok, but I'd of thought the pole would have broken before it got that far. It looks like a wood pole from the pics.

Can anyone make the pictures larger (full screen)? I'd like to make this my wallpaper at work. I'm not sick, I just find this to be awesome.

Nah...insurance companies have known about cars like these for decades.... A few peoples actions aren't going to raise the rates for everyone.

nah, link to the other one and I'm happy to merge it.


NO KIDDING! I was on the edge of my seat! Back and forth, back and forth...driving me nuts! OT was killer!!! We were supposed to go to that game, but called it off due to the horrible season. If they are playing well next season, we'll head up there during winter.
thats why you CAN'T give up on them! Games like that! Especially against a divisional rival! You should know its always a different game! lol I still havent been to a home game since they renovated soldier field!


but back on topic, i agree he HAD to be going at least 70 to do that!

pure luck, nothing to do with the car. My brother did someting similar in an 1982 Cutlass. The only area in the vehicle that was not crushed was the space he occupied...........

What the ****! Probably learning paddle shift and clicked left instead of right then compensated by stepping on right foot instead of break? Glad to know he walked away but damn, poor car, no duct tape to fix this one............

Seeing things like this actually makes me wish they had got hurt to some degree... 1. for being so stupid to do whatever they were doing on public roads and endangering others, 2. to just learn a d@mn lesson about life.

Glad no one was hurt in the process.

He is very lucky to have survived that accident to walk away from it.

It is very sad to lose another 2010 Camaro. This car was probably a Rental Car. Most accidents like this are a result of reckless driving in a Rental Car.

I went and searched for 2010 camaro crash's. This is one that poped up.

Now, I've never totaled a car before so I don't know the process. Would you be allowed to strip some of the good parts off this camaro? What does the insurance company do with it?

Guy from that one claims to be on our site. He posted up a LONG time ago and everyone questioned if that was really him or not. Think it was...he had extra pix.
